Got tint?
« on: July 17, 2005, 12:02:43 AM »
Got my windows tinted today at IDS (Broadway and County Line) Madico film all around. I'm really happy with the result 8) They have done several cars for me, and have never let me down.



While I was there I got to check out the brand new Bentley Arnage R they had just finished tinting...It was a deep red color with peanut butter leather covering absoulutely EVERY inch of the interior, except for the machined stainless steal dashboard 8O ...$250,000 and looked like it was worth every penny...drool

Unfortunately I had just missed a Ferrari F430 they had just finished up with...dammit I wanted to hear the exhaust note!

Nice.  Same place I have had about 8 cars done.  I even got a couple from here to go to 'em.  I think all that have dealt with them have been satisfied.  Did you have them do the sunroof?  I also had them clear bra the heck out of my sub... love it.

Lookin' great.  We should hook up sometime and compare notes.

yeah, I used them for the clear bra on the OBXT, they did a FANTASTIC job.  Jeremy, evil-O, recommended me to them, and i could not be happier.

I noticed how good your tint was when I saw you drive past me today.  I am assuming that it is the 20% tint.

Looks great.

Looking great. I'm having a hard time imagining ever owning a car without having the windows tinted dark.

Thanks guys! The film dried in 2 days since it so hot. Noah at IDS said it prolly would. Yep it's 20%  8)

IDS has done my:

Outback ...20% all around.
My Jetta ...35% grey smoke metallic all around.
My Passat ...20% in the back and 35% in the front.
...and now my Subie.

So far I'm happiest with the 20% all around, though it is kinda dark looking out at night. It keeps my stuff out of site when I leave it out (Ipod, cell phone etc)  and keeps my dog cooler...

The metallic was great for blocking heat out but 35% wasn't dark enough.

Just for comparative purposes, would you mind telling us how much you paid for the tint all around?  I always went to a place just south of Wadsworth and Quincy, and I think I always paid around $200.

The sedans were all $150, and the wagon was $180...but I think they usually ask for $200 for a sedan if you are a walk-in.

If you are planning on going there, just mention to them that you were referred by a friend and ask for the $150 deal (sedans) and they will most likely hook you up.

BTW if you want darker than 35%, they usually insist on cash only.

Thanks for the info. Next car that needs tinting, I'll definitely consider IDS.
